Pregnancy and Exercise

I am trying to be better at staying fit this pregnancy. My first two pregnancies, I didn't really exercise and only gained about 25 lbs. with each one. I tend to loose weight quickly when I nurse and got too skinny after nursing both of them for about 5 months. So with Coleman I tried to eat ice cream with peanut butter every night to gain extra weight to see if I could nurse longer with him. I definitely gained the weight, somewhere around 40 lbs., but still was only able to nurse about 6 months for different reasons. Anyway, I was wide hipped and my body was weird, it looked like it belonged to someone else. So this time I am trying to stay fit and just nurse as long as I can.

I have found a pregnancy workout video that I really like. Since a lot of you out there are expecting I thought I would recommend it. It is called The Perfect Pregnancy workout. It looks low budget on the cover, but it is by far the best one of the four I have tried.

I also like the Pilates Pregnancy workout, although the lady is weird and talks WAY too much!! It focuses a lot on the core.

Does anybody have an aerobic pregnancy video they would recommend?
